Toddler Group has 3 full time teachers with a collective 19 years of experience at EBJ. Each day they follow children’s play through an indoor and outdoor environment that encourages books, music, blocks, art activities, manipulatives, and a host of early childhood experiences involving fine and gross motor skills. As children work at their play, staff help them to build relationships between child and child, and staff and child. “Use your words,” “Tell her you want to play,” “Ask him if he wants to share your blocks,” are suggestions heard throughout the rooms. “Let’s talk about that” is a gentle problem solver that the skillful teachers use to move children in the direction of lasting friendships.
